And the Winner Is... Creamy Million Dollar Chicken Casserole Recipe by Donna John

Casseroles Poultry Dinner

AllRecipes released their top chicken casserole recipes, and Million Dollar Chicken Casserole was in the top spot. After researching, I found that this chicken recipe is basically the same across social media. The popular chicken casserole is quick to prepare and guaranteed to be a family favorite.

I like that this creamy chicken casserole recipe makes a manageable amount for two people. For larger families, you could double the recipe and bake it in a 13x9-inch baking pan. Not a fan of cottage cheese? Try substituting ricotta cheese, mascarpone, Greek yogurt or sour cream. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 can (10.75 ounces) cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 32 Ritz crackers (1 sleeve), crushed
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • fresh chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Mix together the cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, garlic powder and onion powder. Add the chicken and mix well. 
  2. Pour the mixture into a greased square baking pan
  3. In a bowl, combine the melted butter and cracker crumbs. Sprinkle over the top of the casserole. 
  4. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 40 minutes.
